Lost and found - More travel info - CTA (2024)

Reporting a lost item:

If you’ve lost something on CTA, we may be holding onto it for you.

Lost items found on CTA vehicles or at CTA rail stations are sent to the bus garages or rail terminals associated with specific bus routes, rail lines or stations. For items lost on CTA, see the list below for the bus garage or rail terminal to contact.

At no time does the CTA assume responsibility for lost items. Items are kept fortwo weeksafter being found.

Lost & found retrieval tips:

  • Items sometimes don’t reach terminals or garages until the end of a shift. It is best to wait and call the next day to confirm if CTA found your lost item.
  • When you call, be ready with information that can help us identify your lost item, such as a detailed description or a unique characteristic of an item.
  • Knowing the run number of the bus or train, the bus route number, the bus or car number, train line or station name, the time of day you traveled, and the direction of travel can help.
  • On rail routes with more than one terminal, you may need to check with more than one terminal to track down your item.

Bus garage and rail terminal directory

Each garage plays host to several bus routes. Check the list below for the bus route or rail terminal where the item was lost to determine which location to call.

Please note: Some bus routes operate out of more than one bus garage. When this is the case, it is noted next to the route name. You may need to contact more than one garage to find an item.
